A joint statement issued via notorious golfer Tiger Wood's website and Lindsay Vonn's Facebook profile have confirmed the pair are in fact dating after many months of speculation. On Monday, March 18, 2013, the twenty eight year old blond world cup Olympic Alpine skier admitted she and the pro golfer are indeed an item with: "I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy." She went on to request a certain degree of privacy and post a picture with a simple: "I don't plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family, and close friends."
Woods offered a similar statement regarding the romance and his career via his website. The statement: "This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Soemthing nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."
This announcement follows speculation that Woods re-proposed to his former wife, Elin Nordegren during the Christmas season of 2012 following the end of their marriage due to Tiger's highly public cheating scandal. Apparently she declined due to the new beau of her own, billionaire Chris Cline. Neither Tiger nor Elin apparently have introduced their romantic partners to their two children, five year old daughter Sam and four year old son Charlie since both attended Sam's recent soccer game separately and alone.
